    Default external DVD / CD drive help

    My parents recently gave us a laptop, but there is no disk drive. I'd like my kids to be able to use it to do their math which is a set of CDs, so I am looking for recommendations on an external drive.

    I don't know if you like Amazon or picking up in store, but Amazon does have some pretty good ones.

    I've been shopping around myself and thinking about this one:

    https://www.amazon.com/External-Nova...dp/B01M8M50WI/

    It reads and writes DVDs/CDs and has USB 3.0, so it's newer and faster than others I've seen.

    We've had an external DVD/Blu-Ray player for many years now. I got that rather than put Blu-Ray players into all of our computers. Our's is Asus (I think) and has been doing its job for many years. The ones I've seen, including our own, give the appearance of being quite fragile, so I'd exercise a light touch when using them... no different than built in DVD players, I guess...

    Thank you both! I did read some reviews of some that said they seem a bit fragile.

    They're especially fragile when used as cup holders
